Tatsunoko VS Capcom, came to the Wii in Japan in December of 2008. At the time, the possibility of the title coming to America was completely low. Then word of the game later dropped off the face of the Earth. A few months afterwards, word on the game for a North American release was reopened. Capcom noticed that the fan base for the game was indeed a lot higher than what they first perceived. They announced the game was to be releasing in North America.
